Study shows link between prophylactic dressing use, reduction in pressure injury rates

from Mölnlycke via News-Medical.Net

A new study shows a clear association between the prophylactic use of five-layer foam sacral dressings and reductions in pressure injury rates. Specifically, the study looked at the prophylactic use of Mölnlycke's Mepilex Border Sacrum dressing in the acute care setting over a six-year period (2010-2015). The study used billing claims data to evaluate the real-world effectiveness of a prophylactic dressing at reducing hospital-acquired pressure injury rates in 1.03 million patients treated at 38 academic medical centers and member institutions of the University Health System Consortium. more
